Another Trip Advisor Report on BYC on Ambergris Caye

“Nice location”

3 of 5 starsReviewed March 2, 2013 NEW

We had a nice stay at the Yacht Club, partly because I was prepared to not expect luxury and to not have an ocean front room as we had booked and paid for. We were first given a one room all the way back from the sea and no kitchen. I produced a handwritten note that said Julia had confirmed with our travel agent that we would have a full kitchen.

We then were given a one bedroom, 3 rows back and did have a kitchen. Since it was getting late, and we were up since 4 AM we took it

Talking with other people, they booked an ocean front and did not get it. In fact, looking at the ocean front units, they seemed empty with the porch furniture piled up – I do not even think they are in the rental pool.

Therefore, no matter what your confirmation says, do not expect an ocean front.

The staff is very nice and seemed to try very hard to please. They probably have to try to work around the management’s loose booking promises

The grounds are beautiful. Location a short walk to town, but far enough to be quiet. Many security men although the whole area seemed safe

The pool was small but adequate – no shade though, maybe that is why almost no one used it while we were there

The room was a clean as it could be with the basic condition the unit was in. I did NOT see any bugs or mold

The furniture was old an rickety. Curtains did not match and blinds and windows did not fit well. All of the fixtures, spigots, door handles were corroded

There was no phone at all,

The kitchen had about 18 inches total prep space, and it, as well as the bathroom counter were tiled, some cracked with repairs. Very hard to keep clean

The kitchen was very minimally equipped with very worn utensils – luckily, I brought some from home

There was no table to eat on except the one on the balcony which was fine except when rained or was dark

Towels were sometimes frayed or stained. Wow! the sheets were so thin, you could see right through them!

Only the bedroom had AC, but it seemed adequate for the whole unit

We were right next to a little seating area for a small eating area. They started to clean it about 6 AM which started the birds up. This was noisy. They were cute, and we did not mind getting up early to explore, but this might be bad for some folks.

However, the view from our balcony was nice. Belize is wonderful. So, since we were not in the room that much, it is an OK, but minimal place to stay
